Examples

The following code example shows how to create an empty instance of the CounterCreationData class. Because the example does not pass in any parameters, the CounterHelp, CounterName, and CounterType properties are not specified and must be defined later.

   CounterCreationData^ myCounter2 = gcnew CounterCreationData;
   
   // Set the properties of the 'CounterCreationData' Object*.
   myCounter2->CounterName = "Counter2";
   myCounter2->CounterHelp = "Second custom counter";
   myCounter2->CounterType = PerformanceCounterType::NumberOfItemsHEX32;
   
   // Add custom counter objects to CounterCreationDataCollection.
   myCol->Add( myCounter1 );
   myCol->Add( myCounter2 );
   if ( PerformanceCounterCategory::Exists( "New Counter Category" ) )
      PerformanceCounterCategory::Delete( "New Counter Category" );
   
   // Bind the counters to a PerformanceCounterCategory.
